This is so going to out me but I actually don't care. I went to a wedding this weekend. We had to buy our own evening meal and the invitation said "no presents please, cash gifts only". There was a wishing well at the reception to but cash into (ringing the bell as you did <cringe>). This morning I received this corker which, obviously, I needed to share with you at once...

Cash we asked for because cash we need
For our kitchen to proceed
Having checked our wishing well
We think some people might not have rung the bell.
If you’re one who has forgotten
Don’t sit at home feeling rotten
Just use the bank details at the end of this ditty
And you can still contribute to our kitchen kitty

Wow! That is truly outrageous. I have never seen anything like that. It wins, you are right.

Noooo! I'm squirming with embarrassment for them shock
That's got to be a wind up surely?

Had you rung the bell?

Piratejones Mon 21-Jul-14 09:46:37

I dare you to reply with:

Cash does in fact come from trees
So take these leaves if you please
be thankful that it's not the axe
i'd love to see it in your backs.

How do they know who put cash in and who didn't? surely it was either loose cash or a sealed envelope, the only way of knowing would be if it was a cheque and so the name was on it.

that by the way is the worst wedding thing I have heard of, how grasping.

Had you put money in though?

No one is that much of a twat and still has friends willing to attend their wedding
